Kokoda with sweet potato and cassava chips | Like many countries around the world, Fiji has its own version of ceviche or ‘cooking’ fish in an acid such as citrus juice or vinegar. For this Kokoda recipe, I’ve used ocean trout as it’s not only delicious, it’s sustainable.

Heston Blumenthal's triple cooked chips
Heston Blumenthal's triple cooked chips | These chips are one of my proudest legacies! You see them on menus up and down the country now but the original recipe came out of endless experimenting at home long before I even opened the Fat Duck. The first secret is cooking the chips until they are almost falling apart as the cracks are what makes them so crispy. The second secret is allowing the chips to steam dry then sit in the freezer for an hour to get rid of as much moisture as possible…

Chocolate chip cookie dough pots
Chocolate chip cookie dough pots | My children love a chocolate chip cookie so gooey on the inside that I can’t really make the outside firm enough to let the cookies keep integrity of form. This, then, is the solution: a cookie dough you bake in a little dish, and then eat with a spoon, dolloped with ice cream or crème fraîche as desired. For this recipe you will need 6 ramekins approximately 8cm/3¼in diameter x 4½cm/1¾in deep (approximately 200ml/7fl oz capacity)

Pumpkin ice-cream choc chip cookie sandwiches
Pumpkin ice-cream choc chip cookie sandwiches | Let me tell you a little bit about the cookies in these ice-cream sandwiches. They’re actually my favorite chocolate chip cookie ever. The recipe is adapted from Kim Boyce’s Good to the Grain, a book I like very much, and they’re made with wholemeal flour, so their texture is much richer and nuttier than cookies made with plain flour. They’ve got so much dimensionality and, dare I say it, complexity. The pumpkin ice-cream is not too rich and…
